Well hello there December, it’s nice to see you!

I can’t believe we’re here already, but I’m totally ready for Christmas movies, peppermint bark, pretty snow, and lots of celebrating. I’m just starting to get my thoughts together for Christmas shopping, which is to say that I haven’t done any yet, but I’m definitely further ahead mentally than I was last year, ha! What are you doing this weekend? Any decorating, baking or shopping? Tell me your plans!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!

Ahhh I LOVE these candies! They were an instant hit when I made them a handful of years ago; since I can’t make them anymore due to Joseph’s peanut allergy, you all need to make them and eat them for me 😉
